Chosen Child

Updated on January 3, 2012

Chosen Child: I Rise

~I Rise~

I rise…

Over the doubters

Over the chances

Over the obstacles


Determine the odds

Loosing is not an option

Winning……is EVERYTHING!

In life what do I want?

To dibble in the lane


Wealth, security, and power

Day after day

Time after time

Hr. after hr. &

Sec. after sec

I must continue to work hard.

Underrated I am!

Like a free-throw I gotta stay focused


Must keep my vision of my hopes and dreams alive

Crossover the negativity


Highlight reel the positivity

I don’t do it for the fame or the fortune

I do it for the GAME.

Life to me is basketball

I wouldn’t want it to be any different

I do all of this because,

I rise.
